To mark the resumption of the IPL 2021 cricketing league, Tata Motors has rolled out a special edition of its flagship SUV, named the Tata Safari Gold. The ‘Gold’ suffix is a nod to the league being resumed in Dubai, also referred to as the ‘City of gold.’ The Safari Gold will be offered in two versions – manual (Rs 21.90 lakh) and automatic (Rs 23.18 lakh, both prices, ex-showroom), making it pricier by a little over Rs 1.10 lakh compared to the Safari Adventure edition.
The Tata Safari Gold will be available in two exterior colorways – White Gold and Black Gold. The ‘Frost White’ option brings a black roof, and golden accents are familiar to both versions. The exteriors of the Black Gold color are inspired by coffee beans, with golden highlights. On the interior front, the Safari Gold’s dashboard has a different insert and more golden accents.
More importantly, the Tata Safari Gold packs new features on the inside, such as white diamond-quilted leather seats with ventilation for both first and second rows, a wireless smartphone charger, an air purifier as well as wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay; additions that will make their way to the standard Safari as well.
The Tata Safari Gold has the same powertrain options as other Safaris: a 2.0-liter, Kryotec diesel engine putting 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Buyers can either pick a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission to go with it.
